I would recommend you first try treatments such as breathing steam, or keeping a vaporizer in the room. You can use a saline nasal rinse or spray for nasal congestion or dryness.

It is important you talk with your doctor prior to starting any new prescription or over-the-counter remedies, and if your symptoms continue or if they become worse you should notify your doctor immediately to rule out a possible infection.
